Well it's Friday and only 13 days until Christmas!! I am excited for it to get here, but also not wishing the time away because I love this time of year so much! We have been doing lots of Christmas activities and have a whole bunch more on the calendar for the next two weeks!
Last night, I addressed Christmas cards to the light of the Christmas tree and watched one of my very favorite Christmas movies, The Family Man. Mike and I watch this every Christmas season, we laugh at all same parts and there are a lot of them! Love it, if you haven't seen it, you should!
This also counted as one of my favorite moments of the week. Christmas lights twinkling, cozy blanket, favorite movie, cup of tea. Perfect!
Since we are talking about Christmas movies here are some of our other favorites that we watch every year. I don't think we are alone, these ones are classics!
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
We watch Home Alone with the kids on Thanksgiving night. It has become a new tradition. We then try to watch National Lampoons ourselves after the kids go to bed, but now we are getting older and tired and we can't stay awake, so we end up having to find another night to watch it!
How The Grinch Stole Christmas
Other than the above three, we just pick any old Christmas movie to watch. Yesterday morning while I wrapped, I picked a random Christmas movie on Netflix to watch. Mike thinks they are all cheesy, but I love them! They are almost always about some magical way that two people fall in love or back in love, and they just make me happy!
On a completely unrelated to Christmas favorite, I read my favorite diet book this weekend. Yes, I am using diet book and favorite in the same sentence! Choose to Lose written by Chris Powell. The concept of carb cycling and all the reasons why people have such a hard time losing weight made so much sense to me. I am actually really excited to start, but I am being realistic and we are starting the Sunday after Christmas. Interested in learning more? I talked about this book a few times this week and you can read the posts, here and here. I will be documenting the whole process leading up to and during the diet.
Now I need to get going to start my favorite day of the week! Friday, no plans, pizza and movie night with my favorite people are on the agenda! Christmas movie, christmas lights and lots of snuggling! Gotta love Fridays!
Linking up with Andrea at Momfessionals today!
Have a Great Weekend!
